Efficient Water Use Can Save Your Business Time and Money!
Commercial, industrial and institutional buildings consume nearly 20 percent of the drinking water in the U.S. Cutting back on commercial use by a mere 10 percent could save more than 2 trillion gallons of water a year. Efficient use of water is good for both the environment and your bottom line.
The first step is to determine where most of the water use occurs in your facility. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers an online Portfolio Management auditing tool to track your indoor and outdoor use.
Next, prioritize your list of water efficiency improvements and take action. Businesses and other organizations creating or updating landscaped areas should make water efficiency a top priority.
